Recently, Vitalik Buterin, the author of the Ethereum white paper, talked about Cardano during a conversation with MIT AI Researcher Lex Fridman.
The Russian-Canadian programmer’s comments about Cardano were made during episode #188 of the “Lex Fridman Podcast“.
Buterin acknowledged that there were “interesting ideas” coming out of work being done on rival smart contract platform Cardano by IOHK (which is headed by Charles Hoskinson).
As reported by The Daily Hodl, Buterin said,
There’s definitely interesting ideas in there. I do think Cardano takes a bit of a different approach than Ethereum in that they really emphasize having these big academic proofs for everything, whereas Ethereum tends to be more okay with heuristic arguments. In part because [Ethereum is] just trying to do more faster. But there are definitely very interesting things that come out of IOHK Research.
